              Moon Knight:
The Complete First Season                  review by Bobby Blakey

Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm have been bringing a variety of new programming to Disney+ since its launch in 2019. Sadly, none of these shows were being released to physical media and could only be seen via the streaming service until 2023 when they dropped Loki Season 1, WandaVision and the first two seasons of The Mandalorian on 4K and Blu-ray. Now they are giving fans more of what they want with more new releases including Moon Knight: The Complete First Season on 4K and Blu-ray.

Moon Knight follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift shop employee who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life and discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt. The series stars Oscar Isaac in the title role alongside Ethan Hawke, May Calamawy, F. Murray Abraham, Antonio Salib and more.

Moon Knight is one of my all-time favorite Marvel characters and I have been waiting for this moment to see him come to live action. Like most when they debuted some of the first look of him, I was less than enthused and then the addition of Mr. Knight, whom I am not a fan of, made me think it might not work at all. Add to the mix the multiple personality aspect and this had the chance to be one of the most unique shows from Marvel Studios and it delivered.

I am aware that there are elements that aren’t exact from the comics, but that is par for the course to the entire MCU. Thankfully they kept enough of it intact

and infused multiple versions of the characters’ stories to create something new. Oscar Isaac is fantastic in the role. He brings the depth of each personality to the forefront and masterfully bounces between them. I was bummed that they went with the Arthur Harrow character, which is a one issue throw away character, as the villain, but thankfully they created something new with him and was just him in name alone.

The film goes all in with it bouncing in and out of its own consciousness to create a chaotic story of life, death, mental instability and redemption. I can see how this might not work for some especially as it gets into dealing with the varying Gods, but that is the world Moon Knight navigates. I am so happy they opted to just cut lose and bring these characters to life and just create a universe that is all its own while still able to bring the character back in another form later.

The Moon Knight action is fantastic with a few sequences that showcase him shifting between Mr. Knight and Moon Knight that is outstanding. This show was everything I didn’t know I wanted from this character. It didn’t fully bring what I wanted to life, but instead took me on a new journey with my beloved character that had me eager for more. They still haven’t said anything about a follow-up season, but they ended it on a great moment than delves deeper into the persona of the character and its future.


This awesome new release offers up not only all 6 episodes of the series , but also bonus content including gag reels, deleted scenes, and featurettes as well as collectible concept cards and brand-new box art designed by popular artist Attila Szarka.

Join the mental battle with Moon Knight: The Complete First Season when it hits 4K and Blu-ray on April 30th from Marvel Studios.
